Free phlebotomy services in accordance with current promotion.  We will honour the cost of phlebotomy services, provided completed pathology takes place.  In the event of failed phlebotomy, there is obviously no sample to analyse but you will be offered alternative options to complete the pathology.  (We are charged for the phlebotomy service, irrelevant of its success).  We may be able to refer you to a different pathology network where you can attend a Hospital for phlebotomy as well as pathology (additional fees MAY be applicable).  In the event you do not wish to try again, we will be more than happy to refund you the cost of the test, minus the phlebotomy fee.  (Nurse home visit - £45 / BMI attendance - £35).

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue is a common topic of discussion on various internet forums, and is one of the many medical controversies. Those who believe they have a thyroid disorder but have not revealed one upon testing thyroid function, may consider next that the adrenal glands are at fault. Generally, conventional physicians are sceptical - whereas many unorthodox or alternative practitioners believe in its existence. The hypothesis is that the adrenal glands, responsible for the production of essential hormones such as cortisol and dehydroepiandosterone sulphate (DHEAS) , are sensitive to stress - particularly when it is prolonged or intense in nature - and respond by underperforming. Acute severe illness - such as pneumonia - is also believed by proponents to be a trigger for Adrenal Fatigue.

Adrenal Gland Disorders

Adrenal gland disorders are recognised by all clinicians, and there is plenty of information in the medical literature about Addison's disease (failure of the adrenal gland to produce enough cortisol) and Cushing's disease (production of too much cortisol), for example. Testing of cortisol levels and associated DHEAS levels can point to such diagnoses. The argument really is whether a lower grade problem does truly exist, or whether the symptoms ascribed to adrenal fatigue could just be symptoms of fatigue in general, or of recovery from acute illness or indeed of a depressive illness. Testing has always been difficult, particularly in less clear cut cases, because the levels of cortisol tend to fluctuate by day, and between individuals. At Blue Horizon, we like to keep an open mind - our view is that probably all systems of the body are capable of underperformance as well as complete failure. Historically though, testing of blood to prove underperformance can be difficult. Testing cortisol at 9am is generally thought to give the best snapshot view (cortisol peaks at around this time in most of us) and combining this test with DHEAS estimation increases the chance of detecting a deficiency in adrenal activity. Further testing could then be guided by this baseline knowledge.

Adrenal Fatigue Analysis Profile

This new profile is particularly exciting we believe as we also offer tests of other essential hormones, which if not related directly to adrenal function, are definitely interlinked. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (T4) levels will tell you how your thyroid is performing too – and possibly reveal an underlying pituitary problem if both TSH and T4 levels are simultaneously low. Oestradiol and testosterone levels – both important in varying quantities in men and women – are also measured, giving even more information about your hormonal balance. Fatigue, poor performance, reduced libido – all are possibilities with low testosterone or oestradiol levels, even if cortisol and thyroid hormones appear to be within normal limits.

We do not diagnose conditions on the basis of any test results but do comment and advise upon your possible next steps. Furthermore, we are not linked to any pharmaceutical or health food companies, and consequently would never endorse a particular regime or course of treatment for any condition. So you can be assured there is no potential conflict of interest arising from test results which may suggest an underlying deficiency or disorder, such as Adrenal Fatigue.
